Trump comes out strong. But is it too late?
Had Donald Trump debated three weeks ago the way he did Thursday, he might be in a better place. His defense of his handling of the pandemic was cogent.

My Wild 2 Weeks Inside the Trump Campaign Bubble
LAS VEGAS — Monday was a day of rage for Donald Trump. He woke up at his Las Vegas hotel, a gold brick of glass on the edge of the Strip next to an abandoned lot, and was already in a foul mood. The previous day he had seen a TV ad that accused him of belittling American soldiers. “Losers. Suckers. Dopes. Babies,” the ad said. “That’s how Donald Trump describes our men and women in uniform.” He had railed about it at a rally in Carson City — “ ...

Obama's speech in Philadelphia was powerful, America needs more from him
Barack Obama finally hit the campaign trail for his former vice president, Joe Biden, on Wednesday night, after four years of mostly shying away from the political spotlight. But while his razor-sharp speech was a welcome reminder of how great a campaigner Obama is, maybe he doesn't have to spend the rest of his post-presidency as a warmup act. At the start of the Trump administration, Obama seemed to vanish overnight. We'd catch glimpses of h ...

Trump continues bizarre appeals to suburban women as he campaigns in Covid hotspots
(CNN) If President Donald Trump loses his reelection bid in November, it will be in part because of his fundamental misunderstanding of the beliefs of "suburban women," whom he has tried to win back with a series of bizarre and racist appeals that seem more targeted to a stereotype from the 1950s and 1960s than the American women who actually live in those areas today.
